Subject:OT: Spam Filter (again)
View as plain text  
Just for anyone who cares (or cares to do the same), when I reply to 
messages at my average 80wpm and hit send, I don't check if 
SQL,QUERY,etc. is in the message 90% of the time.  Now, besides thanking 
the crew for adding a couple more keywords to the filter, it still ticks 
me off to get a bounce to a legitimate response.  If I get such bounces 
from now on, I'm ignoring them (that includes the last 3 messages I've 
sent).  I'm not going to bother to retype / reformat / forward (because 
its ugly) the messages.  I always reply-to-all, so the author of the 
previous message gets their copy.

PS, it wouldn't be that hard (depending on your mail distribution 
method) to allow subscribers to post without going through the filter 
and only filter unsubscribed people.

PPS, you could always make it database-driven and add people who post 
successfully more than once a week to the no-spam-check list instead.
